If my daughter was a passenger in a car that was struck by a pickup and was injured, is she entitled to an award for pain and suffering?

She has some cuts and bruises from the air bag and debris. The pick-up ran a red light.

Under the laws of all states in this country a personal injury victim is entitled to his or her compensable damages including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Your daughter seemingly would be entitled to the above if she was injured as a passenger in a vehicle. I suggest that she consult with a personal injury attorney in your locality. One can be found on attorneypages.com.
